The following sailing directions were approved Nov. 7, 1904 :The Chester pilot boat is ketch rigged, with her bow coloured white, marked on the black bulwarks, "C. P. No. 1," in white letters, 2ft 6in deep, and on the mainsail with the letter "C," in black, 6ft deep. At night the Chester pilots signal by means of white flare-up lights. When wind and weather permit the pilot boat cruises within the space covered by the red sector of Great Orme light, or between the bearings of S.81 W. and S. 89 W. of the light, but occasionally anchors during southerly gales westward of Chester bar, in about 6fms, near the point "C" on Admiralty Chart No. 1170 B, from which position Rhyl Church is open a little westward of the house on Rhyl pier, S. 18 E. Vessels bound to Chester river may, from off Great Orme head, distant about one mile, steer into the space embraced by the red sector, and continue eastward in it until the north-west lightship bears NE. by N., which is about 13 miles from the Great Orme. At three hours flood this route is available for vessels of 25ft draught, but at low water for vessels of 12ft draught only. It must be remembered that this course leads over Constable bank, which may be subject to change. The best route for vessels other than of light draught is northward of Constable bank buoys. By telegraphing or writing to the pilot office at Connagh's quay a pilot may be engaged to attend at Holyhead Harbour at any time, and captains who do not know this coast are advised to put into Holyhead harbour, and telegraph or write for a pilot to come there, especially when strong winds are blowing from the north and north-west.
